    Barack Obama, there is really no other possibility. The “PREGNANT MAN” gets on my nerves, I do not want to see HIM/HER/IT!! HE was a WOMAN. Otherwise pretty stupid list. I’d go with Tina Fey, maybe. The rest of them, forget it. “Fascinating?” Tom Cruise? Miley Cyrus? I don’t think so.

    Obama and his wife, Michelle perhaps?

    forget Britney Spears! I don’t think Barbara will dare have her on the program. Too risky to have a unstable person on.

    President Bush should be no.1 also Bill O’Riley…

    I agree with Smith,Cruise,Rush and Palin. The rest are a joke.
    Rather see the Queen of England than Obama.

    k Says:

    My first thought was Britney, but then I realized they will want an in depth ( not conservitorshop controlled ) interview from her that will get ratings on it’s own, so yeah, my obvious choice is definitely Obama!

    I don’t think a president elect will sit down with her at this time. That is why Obama would not work.
    Oprah, Sarah Palin, or Angelina Jolie.

    I’m going with Barack Obama.

    don't like bab's list Says:

    Aside from Will Smith, Babs is so out of touch with this list. Has been weirdo Tom Cruise for God sake? What has he down for this year that’s been fascinating?

    me Says:

    come on….it’s so obvious that of course it would have to be Obama whether or not you voted for him or not. He’s our future President for goodness sakes and made history this election so of course it’s Obama. No contest. That being said…that rest of that list is comical. Most of the actors on that list haven’t had any work to qualify them as most fascinating this year. The only people other than Obama that I agree with being on that list would be Sarah Palin, Tina Fey, Michael Phelps, and possibly Miley Cyrus (even though I don’t like her at all she’s a huge tween star and really took off this year).

    me Says:

    oh and to add i think that even though he passed away i think that heath ledger should be on that list. his portroyal of the joker in the dark knight was the only performance so far this year by an actor worthy of being considered fascinating

    The pregnant man was born a woman. So why is that fascinating? Most of her list is a very shallow list. Barbara Walters is more of a celebrity journalist than anything else. I’m not impressed.


    Totally agree.

    Rosie ODonald?

    Jess Says:

    It’s obviously has to be President-Elect Barack Obama

    Jaded Says:

    If the pregnant man is nr 2. then I think she will find her “talking” dog the most fascinating this year. Or Speidi.

    it’s OBAMA of course!!! no suprise there!!!!

    John Says:

    I second all the objections to Tom Snooze, but even more than that: Frank Langella? Seriously? A 70-year-old actor (granted, a very good one) recreating a role he did on stage two or three years ago for relentlessly bland Ron Howard in a film that is getting, at best, very mixed reviews? Naaah, there can’t be any corporate synergy happening there.
